Release the (Lake Tahoe) Hounds!

The Lake Tahoe Hounds running club invites runners young and old, ages 2 to 100 to the Harvest Run Junior Olympic cross country meet Sunday.

The event offers 10 events for racers of all ages in Kahle Park in Stateline. Preregistration runs from 8:30 a.m. until 20 minutes before the start of each race. The course opens for warm-ups and walking from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, and 8:30 to 11 a.m. Sunday.

Sunday’s races start at 10 a.m. with an eighth-mile run for pre-school kids and kindergartners, and a quarter-mile run follows for first- and second-graders at 10:05. The third- and fourth-grade runners run the half-mile at 10 a.m., and the fifth-and sixth-grade runners follow in the mile at 10:20. Registration costs $2 for age groups in those four races.

The bantam-age racers – with birthdays from 1989 to 1990 – begin at 10:30 a.m. with a 2.1-mile cross country run. Midget-age racers (born 1987-1988) follow with a 2.4-mile race at 11 a.m. Youth-age racers (birthdays in 1985-1986) also start their 2.4-miler at 11 a.m. Registration for bantam through youth racers costs $10.

The open and high school division starts at 11:45 with a 2.8-mile run for racers born 1981-1984. The open and masters race starts at the same time, for racers 18 and older. The open/masters division offers a 2.8-mile race, as well as a 4.60-miler. Entry fees for the open division are $10.

The top three finishers win race mugs, and the top 15 in each division win medals.

The course is a well-marked, hilly route that middle-school, high-school and community college cross country teams use for their meets. The grass start and finish line is at Kahle Park, and the course includes running over dirt and grass.

The Lake Tahoe Hounds track club also is selling race t-shirts for $15 each. Kahle community park is located at 236 Kingsbury Grade in Stateline.
